Transportation Contributions have been established by the Reach High Scholars Program to encourage visits to highly-competitive colleges and universities within 450 miles of Raymond.
Parents, faculty members or friends who drive to any of the schools with at least two RHS students, one of whom is not related to the driver, for purposes of an organized tour of the campus and admissions office presentation will be reimbursed at the rate of $0.25 per mile. The Contribution amounts for each of the schools are set out on the list below.
Visits to schools that are more than 200 miles from Raymond will only be reimbursed if the number of students on the trip times the number of schools visited equals at least eight (i.e., four students must visit at least two schools; three students must visit at least three). Not all colleges visited on such a trip need to be more than 200 miles from Raymond.
In many instances it will be possible to combine two schools in a day, which is encouraged. Contributions in such cases will be based on the actual mileage (calculated by Google Maps).
As a condition to making any payment with respect to a college visit, the Treasurer of the Reach High Scholars Program must have received a Liability Release for College Visits with respect to each passenger and a Use of Vehicles in Activities of Reach High Scholars Program with respect to the vehicle, in each case satisfactory in form and substance to the Treasurer.
Payments will be made by check upon receipt of an email to Arlene French, the Treasurer of the Reach High Scholars Program (firstname.lastname@example.org), stating the following: date of the trip; school(s) visited; proof from each school that a campus tour and presentation were attended; name and address of the driver and names of RHS students on the trip.
